Held captive in a whorehouse, Markus Dayspring wakes every morning with a thirst for revenge, and collapses every night with a prayer for strength. He lives on in spite of deadly addictions and a crippling, shameful secret. When he’s rescued by a man from his past, his reawakened love threatens to crush his damaged soul.
Caius also has a secret, one that could ultimately kill him. But his vow to rescue Markus is stronger than guilt, fear and even his loyalty to King Helios. Too many have died because of Caius and rescuing the missing prince might allow him to sleep without nightmares.
Old habits are hard to break and new pain threatens their growing love. Yet one gleaming ray of hope continues to guide them to safety, even in the face of an unexpected violation of trust. With the stakes growing higher by the hour, Markus and Caius must learn to have faith before they can heal and face the future together.
If you have read and enjoyed Uncommon Whore and When I Fall by Belinda McBride, you must pick up the much awaited third book in this world, Prince of Faith. It is a gripping emotional rollercoaster of a tale.
When King Helios was rescued from captivity, it came at a cost. His cousin, and would be rescuer, Markus Dayspring was left behind in a world of abuse, prostitution, and servitude. As of the end of book 2, we didn’t know his fate. Well, now we do… and it is worse than I imagined. He hasn’t been held as long as Helios was, but he isn’t quite as strong of a person as Helios, either. He is broken. He needs someone to care about him and help him.
Enter Caius. We have seen him in the first couple installments has he fought alongside and protected Griff. He is now searching the galaxy for Markus. We begin Prince of Faith about the time the Caius find Markus. We watch the escape, the heartbreak, the agony, the hope, the pain, and the happily ever after. There is action. There is intrigue. There is, of course, love.
This tale is not perfect, but it is entertaining and intriguing from start to finish. Part of that intrigue probably comes from the wait between episodes, but much of it is just a product of fantastic characters, beautiful world building, and a tight plot. I also noticed a nod to another McBride story, The Bacchi, which I now must go read.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
